Streszczenie

Abstract: Optical coherence tomography is a non-invasive method of imagining the anterior and the posterior segment of the eye. It is commonly used in ophthalmic practice to diagnose and monitor various pathologies of the eyeball. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a useful tool to visualize the entire retinal and choroidal microvasculature, allowing the assessment of retinal perfusion without intravenous dye administration.
